Gyalgen Sherpa

Gyalgen Sherpa
Chaurikharka, Nepal (Nearby Lukla)

Gyalgen has been working hard in the mountains since he was five years old. He is currently working with the Mountain Madness team as Assistant Cook, and is interested in learning more about mountaineering in the future. This is his first trip with Mountain Madness, although he has been working with other teams for the past several years as cook, assistant and trekking guide. These teams included Japanese (which he speaks), German, Spanish, and American. Gyalgen plans on becoming a mountaineer so he can go higher in the mountains and wants to summit Mt Everest as a personal goal.
